This is a "don't miss." Enjoy the picnic area with stunning views. Then go inside & watch the 28-minute video which is very informative. I was fascinated by the 3-D model of Jerome in 1937, which shows the underground mines / fault lines / train tunnel. Rock & mineral specimens are displayed, as well as a comprehensive look @ the...

The display inside the house provides a good summary of the history of Jerome. What attracts me most is the view. The parking lot provides a great view of the Jerome town and surrounding area. A reminder that there is no cafe in the park building, so be prepared to eat in town before or after the tour.

Go early in the day and make it your first stop so you can get the history of the town. Very old pieces from mining times and good stories. Will make you appreciate the trip farther up the hill. The shopes are very different than you would think for a town that looks likes it is falling off the side... More

No other place in Jerome or the Verde Valley offers so many ways to appreciate and learn about Jerome as the State Park provides. Just the huge 3-D cutaway model of Cleopatra Hill with all of its historical mining tunnels is worth the price of admission. The mansion itself is a walk through time. Your exploration of it will put... More

Start here to know what you will see around town and get the layout and history, it is $7 per person and well worth it, has a short movie with the history of Jerome. See the mine shafts next door, mining tools are located here at park! Then tour the whole town knowing a lot more about it.

This is a great stop as you are driving into Jerome to give you a good overview of the town and its history. They have a 30 minute video and several artifacts to browse.

Douglas Mansion has been transformed into a museum. Informative video tells the history of the town of Jerome. Many excellent displays and tons of historic photographs that provide an fantastic peek into the past. I especially found the architecture of the mansion interesting.
